During routine patrol, Rocklin Police recovered stolen property connected to several recent thefts. A white Toyota sedan was spotted about 2 a.m. Monday in the residential area of Midas and Argonaut Avenues in Rocklin. After seeing the police car, the sedan pulled over and the officer made contact with the four occupants, according to the release. The vehicle smelled of marijuana and upon searching the car, the officer located marijuana and several other items connected to recent thefts in El Dorado Hills. One of the items, a baseball gear bag, had a name and phone number attached. A telephone call to the El Dorado Hills resident provided information that the bag had been stolen from a vehicle parked at the victim’s residence sometime during the night. An iPod was found to have been stolen from the vehicle of another El Dorado Hills resident. Kenneth Newman, 20, of Roseville, and Christopher Thompson, 20, of Loomis were arrested for possession of stolen property and conspiracy. A juvenile within the car was cited and released to his parent for the same charges. The fourth individual was released without arrest. Rocklin Police also recovered sunglasses, which were later claimed by a Rocklin resident who had been a victim of theft hours earlier. A set of golf clubs and two backpacks have remained unclaimed. ~Staff report
